Why businesses are adopting no code development for core business systems

At one time, perceptions existed in the IT industry that no code authoring was great for non-IT people hoping to create their own homemade apps as curious amateurs and citizen developers.  It was thought that no serious IT development could reasonably be fulfilled by using pre-defined building blocks presented on an integrated design environment. 

Partly, there was some logical sense to this argument: software development is complex and rarely can every possible scenario be anticipated from the outset.  Nevertheless, such is the level of maturity in the no code development world that no code solutions like Encanvas are today able to take on any level of complex applications design and deployment use case.

If we step through the use cases of Encanvas, our no code enterprise software development (and deployment) platform has been used for a variety of high-profile, large-ticket projects.  Examples include to manage regional traffic information systems, coordinate advanced road works across Greater London, provide a Top 5 management consulting firm with the global industry insights it needs to deliver case stories to new and existing clients on-demand, provide the UK with comprehensive energy usage data, and many more large-scale, pan-regional and industry-wide applications.

No code applications design works because it removes code on a screen from being barrier to non-technical business stakeholders.  It speeds up developments and produces better-fit results, because applications can be iteratively nuanced to better fit their user needs and business requirements.  In the software development world previous to no code, either budgets or time (or both) would run out before a best-fit solution could be achieved.

The no code industry is growing at pace, and will surely become the de facto way of creating apps in the future.  With Encanvas, no code app development is complemented by low code and hi code data integration and management, and software configuration management tooling.  This added layer of sophistication means that applications deployed on Encanvas are MORE SECURE, MORE SCALABLE and MORE EASILY MANAGED by IT professionals than their coded predecessors.
